I just downgraded from AK_V8_SSSE3_LX64, but now when I download new tasks the BOINC manager says it takes like 11 hours to complete them, but then when it is running it drops by like 20 second increments after just one seconds. Is there a way to correct this?

I've tried detaching, deleting the BOINC folder and reinstalling, but it keeps happening.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

It'll correct itself over time, just be patient.

If you don't want to wait, you have to modify client_state.xml. To do so, you must stop BOINC completely and open client_state.xml with an editor. Between the <duration_correction_factor></duration_correction_factor> tags, you can adjust the factor. Mine is currently at 0.359583 on one machine and at about 0.5 on the other (depending on the length of SETI jobs).
